  1. List All Engine Issues with the 3.0 Diesel

    I am seriously thinking of getting a 3.0 diesel, since my daughter might be taking over my 2018 JL Sport S 3.6. Before I pull the pin, I want to know all issues, from minor, to major, that the 3.0 Eco-Diesel has, and what if any solutions for these issues are out there. BTW, I've owned a...
  2. Extended Warranty Talk

    I have not had to use my 120 month 100,000 mile warranty yet. But, with many issues I have had, in the past, it might just be a matter of time. I purchased one, when I bought the Jeep, through Fidelity Warranty Services Inc. The Gold+ plan. It only cost $1,900 when I purchased the Jeep. So...
  3. Replacing Pathetic Stock Battery(and Disconnecting Aux Battery) Easiest Solution

    I've now had my stock main battery for 4 years, and I have noticed the engine isn't turning over.as fast as it should, and the voltage meter has been fluctuating between 13.5-14.3. So, time to replace. I've had all types of batteries in my other vehicles, but, it seems the Walmart brands seem...
  4. How far, on a single tank of gas or diesel??

    Just curious what is the farthest you guys have gone, on a single tank. ..
  5. Larger Capacity Radiator, for 3.6 ??

    I'm a firm believer that the radiators, that came with the 3.6 is not up to snuff. Does anyone make a larger capacity radiator? I know people have talked about larger radiators having to be put in Wranglers, that are produced in Arab countries, due to their higher temps year round, and higher...
  6. Are they still building Wranglers?

    With the chip shortages effecting all car companies, what are they doing with all the unfinished cars/trucks. I'm sure they didn't stop production, or even let it slow to a trickle. Have they been stock piling the vehicles, just waiting to have the chips plugged into them?? What about those...
  7. Poll: Bubbles in Paint??

    Just a quick Poll, to see how many have/had bubbles in their paint. If so, how long did you have it, before the bubbles appeared? Also, where on the Wrangler, did the Bubbles appear? If not, how long have you survived, without getting any bubbles under the paint? Out of curiosity, what color...
  8. Which grill? Its hard to decide.

    I just needed some input. Which grill looks the best? https://amoffroad.com/collections/jeep-wrangler-jl/products/rgb-halo-headlights-shark-grilles-combo-jl...
  9. 3 1/2 years of 3.6 ownership

    After 3 1/2 years of ownership, I still love the feel of the 3.6 and Auto Tranny combo. Very peppy, and the shifts are spot on. Of course there are a few issues that come with the Wrangler, but, so far, the engine has been solid. The only issue I have seen is, the engine is very sensitive to...
  10. Good things about a hot running 3.6.

    1. It heats up food, when you are on the go. I put a Burrito, wrapped in foil, on the engine. I tucked it partially under the dust cover, to the left of the alternator. After an hour of driving, in 50 degree weather, it was almost too hot to eat, right away. BTW, don't do this to impress...
  11. Radio Gremlins.

    2018 Wrangler Sport S, with the smaller radio, but the Alpine System. I have a Love/Hate relationship with this thing. Since it was new, randomly, it would shut off, and reboot. This caused the clock to go back to 12:00. I put up with this, until just before the warranty ran out, about three...
  12. Hands Free Driving

    I've been seeing commercials for a while, with drivers driving "Hands Free". Me, I just cringe every time these commercials come on. Hands Free, Lane Assist, and Distance Control, are things that make drivers lazy, and reliant, on technology that can fail. Just my 2¢.
  13. New 2022 Bronco. Watch out Wrangler.

    I was able to look over a new 2022 Ford Bronco with a rag top, and Area 51 paint color. It was the Sasquatch Package. It looks really sharp. I can see people choosing these, if they are not interested in serious off-roading. But, I'm not a fan of the wheels, and how they will get hurt by...
  14. What would you change on the 392??

    I know I do not own one, yet, but what I would change about them is the 392 on the hood, and the way the exhaust is. I would remove the hood 392, and put it on the side fender, or just put a Wrangler specific emblem, like the Hellcat, but different. As for the exhaust, I would have it tucked up...
  15. 392 Sightings

    Not many running around my parts. It was a Blue one with Montana plates. Spotted in Kingwood Tx(Outskirts of Houston). The young blonde female driving it looked bored. The only thing that stood out, was the awkward way the exhaust hung. I think Jeep could have tucked it under, a little better.
  16. Engine eating oil??

    I thought it unusual for my 3.6 to be needing a quart of oil, after being driven around 4k since the last change. I started to notice excessive engine clatter, and had that "Oh, Crap" moment. I thought something was going bad, inside the engine, like others have had. I then checked the oil...
  17. Ethanol-Free Gasoline

    On a trip, the other day, I saw Ethanol-Free Gasoline being sold at a Buc-ee's rest stop/gas station. I have not seen it sold anywhere in Texas, for many many years. I curse the use of ethanol in small lawn equipment, and have had to repair a lot of things because of it. So, I bought a 5 gallon...
  18. Push those fuses down, periodically.

    I havent checked my fuses in a year or so, because things were running well. Well, today, the radio was working, then no power at all. Great, a month after the warranty ran out. Well, when I parked the Jeep, I went to pushing on all the fuses. 6 were bare!y sitting in there. After that, the...
  19. Aux Battery Replaced, Now It Failed Inspection.

    The dealership replaced the Aux Battery, a couple of weeks ago. The Jeep runs and acts great now. So, it was.time to get the State inspection done. They said it fail the inspection, because they said it showed the computer had been disconnected, and needed to be driven 50-150 miles, so it...
  20. I just saw the coolest looking Jeep.

    Sorry, it wasnt a JL. I was driving in my neighborhood, and saw a beautiful 1949 Willys Jeep. It was fully restored, and flawless looking, and looked to be riding on tall skinny tires, with a very mild lift, with the windshield laying flat. The color was Sky Blue, or close to it. No extras...
